Getting To The Point – Tips
Ketosis diets are also considered as very low-carb diets or ketogenic diets. A biochemical phenomenon that occurs during extreme restriction of carbohydrate intake and starvation is called a ketosis but the word should not be mistaken to the ketoacidosis which is one thing that happens to patients with diabetes when there is an uncontrollable amount of blood sugar in their body.
Ketoacidosis will only happen to people with diabetes and it is quite harmful. Ketosis on the other hand is a safe phenomenon and will provide only good benefits to the body of a person.
